Are you suffering from Hypothyroidism or Hashimoto’s?

Women are much more likely than men to develop hypothyroidism. The disease is also more common among people older than age 60. The American Thyroid Association recommends that adults, particularly women, have a blood test to detect thyroid problems every 5 years starting at age 35. Certain factors can increase a person’s chances of developing thyroid disorders. Individuals may need more regular testing if they

  • Have had a thyroid problem before, such as goiter or thyroid surgery
  • Have a family history of thyroid disease
  • Have other autoimmune diseases including Sjögren’s syndrome, pernicious anemia, type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, or lupus
  • Have Turner syndrome, a genetic disorder that affects girls and women
  • Are older than 60
  • Have been pregnant or delivered a baby within the past 6 months
  • Have received radiation to the thyroid or to the neck or chest

Getting tested routinely helps uncover thyroid problems—especially subclinical problems. Subclinical means a person has no apparent symptoms. Some doctors treat subclinical hypothyroidism immediately; others prefer to leave it untreated but monitor their patients for signs that the condition is worsening.
